Max Factor Colour Effect Flipstick

This season, lips are getting the same license for creativity nails have had for years. Flipsticks have a different shade on each end, one a rich creamy shade and the other a lighter shimmering shade. Their consistency is lovely and creamy, with a strong pigment.

You can choose to wear either of Flipstick’s two expertly matched shades, or both at the same time! They’re designed to encourage experimentation with lip artistry, letting you mix and blend through a spectrum of gorgeous colours, so you can find the right one for right now. The range comes in six sexy shades such as bloomy pink and salsa red.

What we say:
‘I am not a big lipstick wearer and when I do wear some it is usually very light pinks or nudes. So when receiving this MaxFactor Flipstick I was at first rather intimidated, especially with it being a bright red. After a few minutes of looking at it and not even knowing where to start, I popped the cap off and starting playing around with all the looks.

‘I really love the name of the product – Flipstick; it has two ends hence the name. Both lipsticks are very pigmented and glide on smoothly. I got the Salsa Red colours to review – the first is a bright red and the second a shimmery peachy red colour. The two colours can be used individually, blended together to create a unique colour, or you can use each colour to create different effects on your lips. You are truly free to try out any look you choose with these colours. Bright red lips with shimmer accent in the middle of your lips, each lip a different colour or lining the outside of your lips in one colour while using the other on the inside… so many options. My favourite look is patting on the bright red and then patting on the shimmer in the middle of my lips. (I pat on the lipstick to have better control of the intensity of the colour.) The colour has incredible staying power and when applied it does stain the lips, which means you have to be careful. (I line my lips in a nude lip pencil just to further ensure that my lips stay defined.) When I applied these lipsticks to the inside of my arm and then tried to remove it with a moist make-up remover towel I seriously struggled to remove the stain from my skin, which is obviously great for long lasting lip colour. All in all, I had a great time playing around with all the different looks.

‘This is such a great lipstick with endless possibilities that gives you the freedom to express yourself however you choose.’

  1. I am not a big lipstick fan but this is not a bad product for me to try when I do want to glam up a bit!

  2. i love the idea of two lipsticks in one. Want to try after reading such a great review.

  3. Cool idea,..which not only saves money but space too…definitely going to try this..

  4. This is great since I can carry one lipstick in my handbag, and change up my look from day-wear to evening-wear without too much fuss.

  5. A great idea and very convenient to carry around in your handbag. You get double value for the price which is quite decent. And the look is quite effective.

  6. Great review! This product is not badly priced at all if you consider what you get. I love the fact that it stains your lips as I hate re-applying every half hour.

  7. This is really cool, saves me money too. Great product, definitely trying it out in a deep red and plum combination. Hopefully they have it
